We utilized the two most popular RNAi technologies (siRNA duplex and shRNA hairpin) in order to perform a head to head comparison of both performance and hit nomination output. Using a previously developed EGFP-based high content biosensor cell based assay, we first executed on an siRNA screen against the Ambion Silencer Select V4.0 library nominating 1,273 candidates, followed by a second shRNA screen against the TRC1 library nominating 497 candidates. I will present our findings and discuss some likely reasons for the observed differential outcomes.
